On tonight’s I’m A Celebrity, Kim Woodburn faced down an army of gnawing green ants, hundreds of cockroaches, spiders and yabbies when she was placed in the John T-Ravolting tank but still had the strength to flirt with Dec at the end of it.
Winning all three starters and two treats, Kim endured ten minutes of critter hell as various creatures were added to each part of the Perspex body.
Cockroaches and crickets were placed in her right leg first. “They’ve got into my knicker leg, one’s on my bum, this is not right you know, they do nip you know, they stink and this is only the beginning.”
Green ants, notoriously nasty little critters, were added to her left arm. “They are sharp, it’s like small knives going in,” she said as they crawled over her face and neck. “It’s like needles going in to you, they are biting my bum, and I feel like a pin cushion”.
A pail of large spiders were then poured in over her head. “I’m terrified of spiders,” she cried as they crawled over her head and goggles.
She’d won the three stars and then to earn her treats nipping yabbies were added to her left leg. Finally, giant stick insects were placed in her left arm. “I’m being bitten up my knicker leg, cockroaches are taking chunks out of me. They’ve nibbled everything I’ve got in the world; I’ve got to shake my pants out. I’m delighted, I didn’t want to fail anything, and I’ve got a cockroach on my nipple!”
Ant joked: “lucky fella!”
As she bid farewell, Kim said to Dec: “Come on darling, you little honey, I think you are very attractive! I’ll be in the caravan later – prepared! You are thinking about that aren’t you?
Dec said: “I can’t stop…”
Cutting in Kim added: “You’ve got my address, don’t let me down.”
“That’s the best offer I’ve had here,” Dec replied.
